at monticello. but it was in paris in the 1780s while jefferson, by then a widower, was u.s. minister to france. he supposedly began a nearly 40-year sexual liaison with sally who was there with him. by law she was free in france. before agreeing to return to virginia to slavery, she set conditions. >> according to her descendents, she said, i will go back with you if any children we have are allowed to be freed at 21. jefferson must have been totally flummaxed by this strong-willed i think quite courageous woman. >> reporter: in september 1802, a richmond virginia newspaper outed jefferson saying, by this wench, sally, our president has had several children. after that, the jefferson-hemmings story was whispered from one generation to the next for nearly 200 years by descendents of sally hemmings. many of whom passed for white. >> it's been an interesting journey for me because it started out when i was a kid, me standing up in class and saying thomas jefferson is my great great great great great great grandfather and being so happy and proud to brag about it when you're studying the president

, wow, there's this guy, seven times tour de france winner, clearly just a terrible cheat. >> for me, it's hard. it's hard to sit back and look into sports and see these things. especially when you're trying to work so hard to convince people in your sport that we're doing this clean, we're working on it to do our best and then this comes out. then everybody sits back and really take a view on everybody, all the champions back in the day and the present ones also. to me it's hard for us. >> should the punishment have been stronger? at the moment you could have a two-year suspension, come back and compete. >> i think it fends. it's hard for athletes because some of us -- for instance, some of us, you may get an energy drink just a simple energy drink, you go to a party, you don't want to drink a beer, you just have an energy drink. they have too much caffeine or certain thing that's in there, that's a banned substance, all of a sudden you're banned for life. sometimes it's different on the rules. i think the rules are okay for me now, but they're cracking -- they're doing a good job to cr

and france with some rates above 50%. in the united states, the average income tax rate is 29%. federally, 39.6% is the highest rate. someone will pay in the united states. so for today's q&a, are americans getting a bargain or are europeans getting ripped off? let me go first. 60 seconds on the clock starts right now. economies richard cost money to run. they are not free and they do not finance themselves organically. there is misplaced popularity in the libertarian myth that governments don't need to involve themselves in most economic matters and that markets will handle whatever needs to be handled. we need taxes. and we need safety and services and infrastructure in return. in some cases, it is simply more economical for governments to provide services because of scale. health care might be one example. the building and maintenance of smart grids and roads. broad band infrastructure. so think of taxes not as needing to be low but of the return from those taxes of needing to be high. now traditionally, richard, that worked in europe. now it doesn't. they got the math badly wrong. so what

as quote counterproductive. france, great britain and the eu also criticized. >> the location as opposed to the number. the announcement to build on the area that is known as e-1, designated in that way. is highly significant. because no government of israel has previously announced major construction in that area. it's pretty much open land. and it represents the possible last link in blocking a geographically contiguous palestinian state. so it's highly significant and will be seen that way in the region. >> are the settlements, are they the biggest impediment to a long-term solution? >> no i don't think they are the single-biggest impediment, i think they are one of the impediments, i think it's a mistake to assign rankings to the problems in the middle east. jerusalem is highly important, very emotional on both sides. i should emphasize that while i believe that the announcement of the settlement construction on e-1 is counterproductive and moves away from a resolution, so is the palestinian action going to the you united nations. what you have here are a series of actions and reacti
